Licensed First Aider
I obtained my license in Basic first aid at Singapore Red Cross last January 2013. We were trained with different life saving techniques and procedures that we could use whenever emergency arises. Although I just had my license this year, I have been practising it for years since I was just a student nurse because basic first aid is a pre requisite to our course.
